Chain-Florey Clinical Lectureships

These are organised and funded by the MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences at Imperial College London.  Emphasis is placed on the development of well-rounded researchers equally strong in both clinical research and basic science. Fellows are expected to carry out their research in one of the LMS’s world-leading basic science groups.   The LMS offers Clinical Lectureship posts to provide support for clinician scientists who have already successfully completed a PhD or post-doctoral fellowship in basic science.


The 4-year Lectureships have been awarded since 2014 in renal medicine, cardiovascular sciences, endocrinology and metabolism, and haematology. Funding is provided for the Lecturer’s salary, a consumables allocation and a technician.
